Here's the lyrics, I hope, this time.
HERE'S A DRAM FOR THE PIPER
Well, come in me hearty fellows,
Hang your hats behind the door;
If you're only filled to bursting,
Well, there's surely room for more;
We'll deny the cold of winter;
We'll have only warmth and cheer,
As we drink a toast together
On the threshold of the year.
CHORUS: Here's a dram for the piper,
Here's a dram for the hall,
Here's a dram to raise the rafters
And here's long life to you all,
Knock the scales from off the bottles;
Light the fire beneath the still;
Let it soak us to our elbows,
As we medicate our ills;
For the whiskey is forgiving;
It can wipe the conscience clear;
As we raise a glass together
On the tankard of the year.
Here we tie the knot as lovers;
Here we drink a toast as friends;
As we pass along from hand to hand
In a dance that never ends;
We'll forget about tomorrow;
We'll have only warmth and cheer;
As we gather here together
At the cradle of the year.
